  1. That's such a shame. Anyway, thanks so much Trevor for the reply. Much appreciated.
  2. Good evening folks. This is ignorant of me, I know, but while flicking through the manual last night I discovered that I should be able to get traffic alerts, weather reports and traffic info displayed on the map. So I have spent all day today turning all the alerts on and I went for numerous drives but I get the same message; "No Information Received". Is it something silly that i'm doing wrong? I've attached a picture. I have a 2015 Cr-v 1.6 diesel. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Thank you Trevor. I'll try that this weekend.πŸ˜€
  4. Good evening fellow Hondeers. I am currently broken hearted at the discovery of a circular scratch on the front passenger door after only 2 weeks of owning my beautiful CR-V. I was recommended Meguairs Scratch X 2.0 at my local Halfords as I can't feel the scratch with my fingernail. I'm afraid of permanently damaging the paintwork though. Does anyone have any experience of using this? It cost a tenner but I'll bin it if I have to. A local body shop said I'd be looking at about Β£120 which I think is a bit steep! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  5. Exactly one week today sir and all is well. Why didn't I own this sooner? Such comfort. The smoothest of rides. A genuine joy to drive which is something I've always found perfuctory, until now! The family love it. Little things like the air vents in the back have managed to almost silence the kids. I tell you, this car is magical, magical i tell you, MAGICALLLLL. Oops, sorry about that, but this is the effect it's having. Oh, and we're riding high on 55mpg. So Happy!πŸ˜‚
  6. Thanks for the warm welcome Trevor. After only 4 days I can confidently say that this is the best car I've ever owned. Every day is a wee adventure of discovery. I'm averaging 54 mpg which gives me a warm and glowing warming glow every time I see it on the display. I've fallen, hook, line and sinker😍 As for the mic, yes., it remains a puzzle. I guess I was just afraid I was missing out on another wonderful surprise, but hey, there's enough to keep me happy....πŸ˜‚
  7. Good evening fellow Honda owners. Yesterday I became the proud owner of a 2015 1.6 I-DTec Cr-v and what a wonderful gorgeousity it is. I have two very puzzling queries that I can't locate answers for in the expansive manuals. Firstly, there is a permanent icon on display in the small centre screen that relates to the passenger airbag. Is it supposed to always be on display? Just a bit concerned because the kids like taking turns up front and I haven't allowed it yet! Secondly, the car has the SD Navigation and I wondered what the small microphone in the bottom left hand corner of the unit is f
  8. Hi Oliver, thank you so much for the feedback. I'm new to Honda so your advice is truly appreciated. Thanks again.
  9. Hi everyone. I've decided that I want to own a beautiful CR-V. I have seen one but for the last 10 days I've been back and forth repeatedly to the point of madness and so was hoping for some advice. The model is 2011 EX 2.2. It is in beautiful condition both inside and out. It has full service history BUT it has 95000. Now, I fully intend to run it for the next three/four years but my doubts are; 1. I've never owned a diesel so what about the Turbo life? 2. The DPF baffles me. How can I check it? 3. The high miles i.e should I be bracing myself for major work? The car is be
